Methodist Walk 2015

Once again, it’s time to walk for FUN – and to raise FUNDS to ensure that our Methodist schools get all the support they need to maintain a cutting edge.

Methodist Walk 2015 Pledge Cards will be given out to all students in January 2015. Every dollar raised by students will go back to the Schools they belong to.

Wesley Methodist Church is the main sponsor for the 2015 event, and their donations will help offset operational costs. This will help to ensure that the funds raised can be ploughed back to the Schools as much as possible.

The aim is to raise $1.5 million. Donate generously to the MethodistWalk 2015, and be prepared for some serious fun:

  • All guests, including VIPs, will be encouraged to mingle freely and easily with participants after the Walk

  • 'Picnic on the Turf ’ with snacks and refreshments, including a Milo van

  • Entertainment from church bands and alumni

  • New theme song

  • Daylight screening of happenings in churches and schools, etc.

How the MSF Supports Schools

  • The Methodist Schools’ Foundation (MSF) was started in 1997. It manages the MSF Endowment Fund.

  • The Methodist Church in Singapore injected $5 million seed capital into the MSF Endowment Fund, which has today grown to more than $10 million through prudent management and blessed investments.

  • Over the years, through revenue earned from investments, and major fund-raising projects like the Methodist Walk, more than $7.5 million has been given away to Schools for upgrading, building and teaching aids, and other programmes.

  • The Fund has to be replenished every year, so that it can be used to earn more revenue from investments.

  • Two other Funds were also set up to extend financial assistance to needy students – the MSF-Chen Su Lan Financial Assistance Endowment Fund and the MSF Financial Assistance Endowment Fund.
